    Hey Russ
    I just listened to “Hearts made of Stone” sure brought back some great memories.

  3. Great Stuff Russ, great listening. Keep Rocking.

    Bobby Bland doing ” Bobby Baby” and Big Joe Turner doing ” Flip Flop and Fly.

  4. I prefer the song Baby Face Leroy – Rollin and Tumblin
    for its unusual sound, its modernity and its influence on Muddy Waters and the music of 20th century

  5. Hi Eddie
    Rollin and Tumblin is definitely a great old hit… long before Billboard. It has almost a hypnotic, repeating riff. – Definitely a Classic !

  6. “Work with me Annie” sure brought back memories of the Willowdale restaurant back in the 50’s. What a wonderful era that was, we were all filled with hopes , expectations, testosterone and cokes flavored with rye whiskey. Great Stuff Russ.

    • Definitely lots of testosterone, but my coke was straight. I didn’t start getting into the hard stuff until I got involved with Al Hepburn and the Houndogs. LOL A song I used think was “naughty” back then was “Don’t Drop It” by Wilburt Harrison.
